's bipartisan goodwill already seems to be a very distant memory. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is standing by. >> reporter: republicans are arguing that the president is trying to foist the center right country in the words of the senate minority leader. he said, not a great way to start off the second term. the senate republican leader had his sound bite on the president's speech ready to go. >> the era of liberalism is unabashedly far left of center inauguration speech certainly brings back memories of the democratic party of ages past. >> reporter: far different from the restrained response the house gop leader gave us hours after the speech. >> you know, i think that the president did a fine job certainly laying out what he would like to see happen as far as the future of the country. we have some differences. hopefully we can bridge those differences. >> reporter: cantor was coming from a bipartisan post inaugural lunch. now with the inauguration over and the pressure to be respectful past, conservatives are eager to share their disgust. >> he's trying to throw a bone
a ten capitol in the morning is going on for more than a year. dana bash takes us behind the scenes. >> reporter: no, that's not the president. it's a stand-in. but this is the kind of exhaustive prep going on to make sure there are no mistakes. it's not just for the president. senator chuck schumer is the events emcee. >> oh yeah. i don't want to do what chief justice roberts did. he's brilliant and he messed up. >> reporter: roberts messed up the oath four years ago. >> i'll execute -- >> faithfully the office of the president faithfully. >> reporter: he had to go to the white house for a do-over. who what are you afraid of? >> introducing the wrong person, who knows? >> reporter: as chair of the inaugural committee, assumer is preparing for this day more than a year. >> we didn't know who the president would be. but together, it's always done in a bipartisan way. >> reporter: a central focus, trying to avoid problems that put a damper on the last obama inauguration. >> tens of thousands of people missed it. they came in from all over the country. so, we've done symbolic things li
for the traditional inauguration day church service and then up to the capitol where we find dana bash. >> thanks, brianna. i am on the west front of the capitol and this is where you're going to see that iconic image of the inauguration, 24 hours from now. this platform will seat about 1600 people and it is really the hottest it ticket in town. you're going to have members of the president and vice president's family, also going to have members of the joint chiefs of staff, the supreme court, governors, senators, house members, actually hearing that some house republicans are not going to be here, even though this is traditionally a bipartisan -- actually a nonpartisan event. this is also the kind of event that draws celebrity supporters. we had james taylor concert effectively here, practicing to sing "america the beautiful" tomorrow, beyonce will be here as well. i want you to look down the mall to see what everybody here is going to see tomorrow. doesn't look like a lot of people now, but we expect to see 600,000 to 800,000 people filling the national mall where don lemon is right now. >> oh,
